OUTDOOR YOGA CLASSES

Reconnect

One of yoga’s (many) advantages is it can literally be done anywhere. Practising yoga outdoors in nature rather than in a studio can enhance your practice in an entirely different way.

Nature connects us to our roots and you need to root down before you rise up. Outdoor yoga is a wonderful way to re-focus and re-root, to deepen your yoga practise!

SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE REASONS
WHY OUTDOOR YOGA IS OH SO BENEFICIAL:

Connect with nature

A big part of yoga and meditation is grounding. It’s important to get in touch with yourself, connect with nature and get grounded. Just imagine lying in savasana with just your mat separating you from the earth – you’ll feel more grounded than ever!

Replenish depleted energy

Spending time outside actually gives us more energy! Studies have shown that being outside sends signals to the brain that the body is back in its native environment, which in turn triggers the senses to stay alert.

Heighten awareness

Being outdoors heightens our senses, making it an enchanting experience. Fresh air elevates our breath awareness making it easier to be self-aware in terms of our breathing – and we all know how important breathing is.

Zen

Just being outdoors can alleviate stress… now imagine combining it with your yoga practice?! Buddha wasn’t in the meditation hall; he was outside, in the forest. Time to OM outside!

It's playful

Transitioning from the indoor yoga studio to the floating kayak or paddleboard can also reignite a welcome state of playfulness that sometimes has gone dormant in our adult lives.

Boost meditation

Nature connection diminishes our level of disturbance and increases our sphere of awareness drawing us closer to our inner selves.
